Memory Theatres: The Photographic Books of Bea Nettles

Lecture by Bea Nettles, who will trace her ongoing involvement with photographic books beginning with her unique and early offset techniques of the 70s and her independently published offset work in the following decades, followed by early “desktop” publishing. Production and distribution will be outlined as she shares the autobiographical content of these books. She is known for her work with women’s lives, memory and her strong attachment to particular landscapes utilizing mixed media and experimental photographic processes that are still used in her hand-made artists’ books. Always curious, she also incorporates the use of her cell phone camera and print on demand resources
